Special Attributes

You've probably seen many Nandinas (heavenly bamboos) with red foliage, but Lemon Lime is the first one on the market to produce lime green foliage...brilliant lime green that is! The lime green leaves will brighten any dark space, adding dimension to an otherwise evergreen planting. We've got it growing in full sun to half-a-day's shade and it does equally well in both exposures. The foliage is a dark mint-green color during winter on shrubs that grow 3-4 feet tall and wide. Does not produces flowers or seeds so you don;t have to worry about seedlings popping up all over the place.

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing naturally to 3-4 feet tall and wide, it's mounding form and beautiful foliage make Lemon Lime Nandina an excellent choice for stunning groupings or mass plantings in sunny to partially shaded landscape borders and home foundation plantings. Also ideal for use to line walkways and paths. Makes a fine centerpiece or accent in container gardens. A fine addition to rock and Xeriscape gardens (low water needs).

Spacing:  2.5-3 for solid hedge or mass plantings;  6' or more for space between plants

Cultural Preferences
Lemon Lime Nandina is exceptionally easy to grow in most any average, moist but well drained soils and full sun to part shade. Plants are exceptionally drought tolerant when established. As with so many other shrubs, constantly wet or soggy can cause root rot and other plant diseases. Exceptionally low maintenance requiring little if any pruning. Its low water needs makes it highly suitable for Xeriscape gardening.
